[Xen-devel] IMPORTANT: GSoC 2015 page created - Need to confirm old projects, create/review new ones and fix projects with issues before Feb 22nd

Hi all,

the deadline for Orgs to apply for GSoc 2015 is coming up. Organisations need to apply before Feb 22nd. One of the things that is crucial that the project list is up-to-date and that there is activity on the wiki page. Google uses this as one of the main criteria to accept projects.

= Verifying Projects =
I created http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/GSoC_2015 based on the 2014 list. Everyone who has a project is CC'ed and should check whether their projects are still valid. You can confirm by adding

|Verified=<current date> 
|Verified=Feb 6th 2015

to your project. I will go through the page and throw out projects that are not verified before the application deadline. If you know a project is invalid, either delete it or reply to this thread.

= Verifying Mentors =
It is also possible that a project mentor does not want to mentor a project any more. If this is the case, please reply to the thread stating the name of the project(s) that you do not want to mentor any more. Ideally I would appreciate if you could add

|Contact=Looking for Mentor to the project also

= Adding New Projects =
If you have a new project, add it under http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/GSoC_2015#New_Project_Ideas using the following template: http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Template:Project

Please set 


You may want to reply to the thread also and invite others to review your project.

= Peer Reviews =

Also, please help ensure that projects are peer reviewed, such that we can move them into Reviewed section. http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/GSoC_2015#Peer_Review_Conventions explains how. 

It would also be good to move projects from http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/GSoC_2015#List_of_projects_that_need_more_work to http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/GSoC_2015#List_of_peer_reviewed_Projects. This requires that some of the issues in them are addressed.

Best Regards
